Social networking sites can help entrepreneurs but their usefulness depends on your needs and the way of networking. As an example, LinkedIn allows you to search CVs in your network, it’s great to find people who have worked with someone you know or who work in a particular company. It’s also an interesting way to find references for people or companies you’re getting to know.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.

    Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever
    before.
